GPI is currently in need of more Kuranda Dog Beds for our kennel dogs.  If you   would like to donate a bed to GPI, please click the image or here for more info.  You will be taken directly to GPI's Kuranda Bed Donation page.  Thank you!
GPI has a wonderful new kennel that allows us to house the greyhounds while they are waiting for their foster and forever homes. GPI needs your donations to run the Hern Greyt Works Kennel and to vet and care for the dogs. You have a number of ways in which you can donate and be recognized:


Donate now through eTapestry

Greyhound Pets, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit tax-exempt organization.  100% of all donations go directly to the care and upkeep of our ex-racing Greyhounds up for adoption.


Your donations will work directly toward the care of hundreds of retired racing Greyhounds who might not otherwise have the opportunity to find life with a loving family.

Greyhounds are gentle affectionate dogs that are wonderful companions for any family. To get from racetrack to couch, they need the generous support of people like you. Your check can be made out to GPI and mailed to:

Greyhound Pets, Inc.
P.O. Box 891
Woodinville, WA  98072

Or if you prefer the convenience of secure online donations through the services of eTapestry, just click on the two dog logo button above.

When you use our "Donate Now" button, you can use a major credit card and you'll receive a confirmation receipt for your tax record

Thank you for helping to preserve the grace, beauty, speed and gentle manner of ex-racing greyhounds in their search for a "Forever Home".

6,000 Greytful Greyhounds and Counting.

Sponsor a Kennel Run

Run Sponsorship Plaques


A bright brushed gold finished Racer in stretch flight pose mounted in positive relief on a gold-framed ebony plaque is waiting to be engraved to the personal specifications of a run sponsor. After display on a donor-selected kennel run for one year of sponsorship recognition, the Golden Racer will be lifted from the background plaque and presented to the donor. It can then be easily displayed in any manner the donor might desire in their home or office surroundings. The sample pictured above does not do the plaque full justice so schedule a time with one of our volunteers to see the real thing and select a run to sponsor. Several have been selected already.

A one year sponsorship is available for a donation of $500.00 or more. Such a donation will support the care and housing of a greyhound for one year. Individuals or groups are invited to sponsor a run.

Please note that there may be a delay in posting the engraved greyhounds at the kennel as these items are submitted for inscription approximately 8 times per year. We appreciate your patience.

Donate now through eTapestry! - If you prefer the convenience of a secure online transaction to sponsor your run, just click our "Donate Now" button.
- Run Sponsorship can also be done by sending a check via snail-mail to GPI's P.O. Box address.
- On the spot sponsorship can be done when selecting a run at Hern Greyt Works by putting an envelope with run selection and sponsorship donation into the donation box in the lobby.
- You will be contacted for specifics on your desired engraving.

Sponsor a Dog

Can't adopt a (another) Greyhound right now?  That special bond can still be yours by sponsoring one of GPI's available hounds while he/she is looking for his/her "Forever Home".

A Sponsorship Donation of $20, $50 or whatever you are able to provide will identify your special relationship with your selected Greyhound.  Your sponsorship will be celebrated on the "Available Dogs" pages of GPI's website. Experience that shared joy when your sponsored Greyhound chooses a family to adopt.

The typical cost of preparing an ex-racer for adoption far exceeds the $300 adoption donation.  Your generous sponsorship can help fill that gap. Foster care and special needs can add to the support costs of some Greyhounds during an extended search for the perfect family.

Here's how to sponsor a Greyhound:

1.  Review the Available Dogs page on GPI's website -
2.  Send an e-mail to Robin James, GPI's Treasurer, at
robinjamesgpi@gmail.com.  Let Robin know which Hound you would like to sponsor.
3.  Payment of your sponsorship can be made online. Just click our "Donate Now" button, below.
4.  Sponsorship donations are tax deductible in the USA.

We will then let your selected hound know about your generous sponsorship!!!

Greyhound Sponsorship is an equal opportunity opportunity. No matter what your shoe size, you too can participate.

Stand taller in a crowd and know the reason why. Be a Sponsor.

Donate now through eTapestry! Be sure to mention which dog you'd like to support with your sponsorship donation.

Checks can be sent to:

Greyhound Pets, Inc.
Robin James, Treasurer
P.O. Box 891
Woodinville, WA  98072

Be sure to mention which dog(s) you'd like to sponsor!  Thanks for your support!

Our current 2018 sponsors are: (Please bow, applaud, or salute according to custom.) Sponsorships from past years can be found here.  All dogs adopted or who went to the Rainbow Bridge during the previous 12 months are moved to our past Sponsorship page at the end of the year.  Thank you for your support.

Donate a Bag of Food


dogfooddrive.jpg (453407 bytes)


Foster and Kennel Dogs Need Food


Sadly, our source for food for our foster dogs is no more and our larder is getting very empty. 

We’d like to restock our foster food pantry.  Can you help us? 

You can help restock our foster food pantry in several ways: 

-    Pick up a bag of Kirkland Lamb and Rice Kibble and drop it off at the kennel   (90% of our dogs eat Lamb and Rice kibble)

-    Pick up a bag of Kirkland Chicken and Rice Kibble and drop it off at the kennel

-    Make a donation through our "Donate Now" button, below, and in the "Additional Comments", designate your donation for food for foster dogs.

-    Search out other sources of good quality kibble.  Talk to your local pet store and see if they have any bags of good quality kibble to donate to us.

We’d love to be able to continue to provide food for our available dogs in foster homes.

Call before dropping off food at the kennel so we can make sure someone knows you are coming and that someone will be there.  Please call Moira (H: 425-333-0515 or C: 206-718-0475) or Robin (425-481-3501) to arrange drop-off or pickup.   Also, please call Moira with any questions.

 Donate now through eTapestry!

We always need donations of dry dog food for the kennel dogs and fosters. As mentioned, we prefer donations of dry Kirkland Lamb and Rice for the dogs as well as the Kirkland biscuit treats.

Make a donation through our "Donate Now" button, below, and in the "Additional Comments", designate your donation for food for kennel dogs.

We can also use supplements at our kennel.  Occasionally, a dog comes in that can use a little extra TLC and FFAs.  Things like Missing Link, glucosamine and anything with FFAs such as fish oil, we would be happy to take.

Thank you for your help!.

Kennel Needs

Our Hern Greyt Works kennel needs are always changing so please check this list often for the items we     currently could use more of.


Needed Kennel Items - Folks always ask what we need for the dogs at Hern Greyt Works. Things we always need: Blankets, quilts and treats (preferably the Kirkland brand dog biscuits). 

Here is a list of the current items we need at our kennel:

Needed Kennel Items - We're frequently asked what we need at the kennel. We always need blankets and quilts for the dogs. Please, no baby sized blankets/quilts - they are too small for the dogs.  No knitted/crotched blankets - the dogs' nails get caught in the holes.  Down filled bedding - makes a horrible mess when it breaks open and no foam-type blankets.  Also, we're in need of:
- Safeway Creamy Peanut Butter
- Kuranda Dog Beds
- Kirkland dog biscuits
- Bedding for the dogs both with stuffing and without stuffing of any kind (Please see note above)
- Bleach
- Kirkland Lamb and Rice Kibble
- 13 gallon plastic bags with ties
- Stamps (49 cents or "Forever")
- Glucosamine HCL powder
- Canned pumpkin (not the pie mix, but the plain pumpkin)
- Baking Soda (the big bags from Costco) - we use this to help neutralize the urine smell in the small yard.
- Other needed items can be found on our Amazon Wish List
